Sew Clothes You LOVE

A five-week, digital course

on getting mindful about your style,
what you make, how you plan and
taking time to adjust the pattern before you cut a thing.

The best part is you won't be all alone...your tribe will be there!

Tired of sewing clothes you don't LOVE?

Any of these sound like you?

  • You spend time and effort making something only to have it languish in your closet.  Gathering dust and stabbing you with guilt every time you pass by.
  • Maybe you’re frustrated from the effort you put into choosing your fabric and sewing pattern, only to end up with a garment that is not what you had in mind.
  • Perhaps you’ve been wishing for an intentional wardrobe, one that is mindfully chosen and sewn, but just don’t know where to start.
  • …or maybe, you’ve had this experience. – You choose your size based on the chart on the pattern, cross your fingers and sew it up. Only to have it NOT fit.

Registration is closed until Mid January - but you can join the mailing list here...

I get it.

I've spent many hours making a piece of clothing just to have it not fit, not feel right or simply not be something I would even want to wear.

I don't know about you, but I picked up sewing clothes as a way to fit my "hard-to-fit" body (turns out, after years of teaching sewing, we're all hard-to-fit!) and as a way to wear clothes that I love.

I mean like, really, really love. Like, wowza, can you believe I made this dress, kind of love.

Sometimes that happened...sort of by accident.

But it only became a regular thing for me when I got intentional about my making.

This course is going to show you how to get there.

To a handmade wardrobe you love. Mindfully.

{and just maybe, give you a bit more love for the journey}

In this course you will go from feeling frustrated and uncertain about the clothes you sew to feeling full of clarity and in love with the clothes you make.

Join us on our journey to add a bit of swing to our step and sparkle to our eye...because we're doing it together.

Class begins November 3rd and goes through December 6th.

Together, we'll be working through the 5 steps to a more intentional, better-fitting, more authentic wardrobe.

This 5 week course is designed to layout a clear path to an intentional handmade wardrobe and give you a supporting hand on your journey.

When you sign up for this 5 week digital course,
you get:

  • 5 weekly video lessons – don’t worry this is not going to take over your life.  Each lesson will be around 30 minutes…except the final lesson on adjusting the pattern, that’s going to be a bit more, because you know, it’s more!

  • 5 weeks of kinship on your path to handmade clothes you love.  In the form of a private Facebook Group where you can post pictures, ask questions and share your wisdom and insight with your fellow classmates and me.

  • Weekly worksheets to get your hands dirty, I don’t know about you, but I don’t learn a thing unless I do it.

  • Weekly, yup weekly, Live Q&As where you can ask me your questions, learn from other’s questions and connect.

  • Some Surprise bonuses
    Sneak Peek: Bonuses like a tutorial on finishing your seams and an interview on fitting clothes to your body with an industry leader.

The 5 weekly topics we'll dive into:

  1. Discover What You Love to Wear
    We’ll take the time to explore what you already own and find what you love and what you don’t.

  2. Define (and dare to embrace) Your Style
    Let’s dust off those old dreams or draw in the new ones, of who you want to be in the world. Because when you show up that way, you magically step into that person.

  3. Mindfully Choose Sewing Patterns and Fabric
    We’ll investigate what types of fabrics you love to wear (that may not be the same thing as fabrics you love!) and figure out how to choose patterns that fit…your style.

  4. Intentionally Plan Your Project
    We’ll talk about sketching and scheming and the joy of it all!  (Psst…it’s a secret way to get some “sewing” in when you’re not in from of the machine.)

  5. Fit Your Pattern to Your Body
    Finally, we’ll dip our toes into the “fit” water.  We’ll discover which order to make adjustments in and how to know, before you cut a thing, whether you need to adjust a pattern.

    {note this course is not an in-depth course on fitting, rather it’s an introduction into adjusting a pattern for your measurements.  A bit of easing into it…you might say.} 

This course is PERFECT for you if:

  • You already know how to sew clorthes and you want to begin sewing clothes with more intention.

  • You’ve started programs similar to this before and want accountability and support from like-minded makers.

  • You already sew clothes but they don’t always work for you and you want to sew clothes you LOVE.

  • You want to become more mindful with your making, but you’re not sure how to do it.

  • You want to successfully choose your size and alter your pattern, but you have questions.

  • You want to connect with like-minded makers, share advice and feedback but you don’t know where to find your maker tribe.

  • You sew clothes only to have them not fit and you want an easier way to sew clothes that fit you.

  • You know how to sew, but you’ve never sewn clothes and you’d like to start.

The doors open to this course only twice a year, so get in now!

Your access never expires, complete the course as you wish, but there is so much power and beauty in doing something so intentional with a group and I encourage you to do the course with us.

That's also when I can guarantee lively interaction with the Facebook Group.

Know that you'll have access the Facebook group and to recordings of the Live Q&A's anytime.

You can also join in on any future launches...for no extra fee. You'll have access to any updates and be there as the tribe expands.

And it's risk free. If you are unhappy with the course, merely show us your completed homework sheets and we'll refund your money, no more questions asked. (refund policy here)

I make clothes as a way to love my body and dress myself in a way that feels authentically me...but I also sew and make with my hands as a way to connect. To connect with people like you. Let's form our tribe, shall we?

What you need to complete this course:

  • Some sewing skills.  You don’t need to be a garment sewist yet, but you should know how to sew and have some idea of how clothes are constructed.

  • An interest in going deeper into your style, who you are and how you want to show up in the world.

  • A desire to learn your specific pattern fitting needs; this course is not an in-depth fitting course but we will be getting into basic fit adjustments.

  • Faith.  Trust in the process.

  • A closet of clothing to try on.

  • Magazines to cut into or internet searches to help define your style.  (you may want some art supplies…if you want to do a physical mood board)

  • Fabric to study and feel.   Maybe a field trip to your local fabric store, or an internet trip to buy swatches.

  • The ability to search for patterns you love.  Either at the fabric store pattern table or online.

  • A pattern or two that you can use for the pattern adjusting module.

  • A flexible tape measure, pen and paper…a calculator is handy. 

Registration is now Closed.

Doors will open again in 2020.
